Judge Sotomayor's questionnaire and speeches now available

From the Government Documents department...

Judicial nominees, including nominees to United States Supreme Court, are required to complete a bipartisan questionnaire compiled by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Judge Sonia Sotomayor's questionnaire and related attachment are available on the Senate Judiciary Comittee's website.

The document submitted to the committee catalogues all of Sotomayor's decisions in 17 years as a federal judge, awards she has received and groups of which she has been a member. Also included in the questionnaire are the transcripts of 83 speeches given from 1993 until April of this year. (Washington Post)
